Ice Dam at creek outlet, observed in the Montmorency River watershed, Quebec (Canada), December 18, 2011
Here is the second post in our little mini-series of stunning ice photos taken by Université Laval PhD student, Benoit Turcotte.
This photo is of an ice dam that formed at the outlet of a creek. Notice that the ice has formed in successive layers. This is know as an ‘icing” or as “aufeis” (ice on top of ice).
